IT Kanpur introduces Planar Trefoil Knot Antennas

The Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IITK) announces the development of ‘Planar Trefoil Knot Antennas,’ which can be a breakthrough for the communication industry. It has been developed with the collaborative efforts of Saurabh Shukla (PhD student) and Prof Ayyangar Ranganath Harish from the department of electrical engineering at IIT Kanpur. The invention has been granted an Indian patent too.

The increasing utilisation of wireless systems, wireless communications, and the rising adoption of the antenna in consumer electronics such as smartphones, laptops, wearables, tablets and other devices are expected to drive the antenna market over the coming years. Moreover, a significant rise in the need for smart antennas as a result of technological advancements in this segment is expected to provide a boost to the market. IIT Kanpur’s invention can be a great addition to this growing segment. This innovative structure can produce both omnidirectional as well as directional patterns, providing exceptional versatility for various end-users.

Prof Abhay Karandikar, director of IIT Kanpur, said, “This is a significant development in technology and has far-reaching implications for India’s communication and other industries. The technology showcases the ingenuity and expertise of our researchers at IIT Kanpur. Its capability to produce both omnidirectional and directional patterns gives it an edge over market alternatives. We believe that this invention will revolutionise the way antennas are used in a wide range of applications, contributing to the advancement of wireless systems and meeting the growing demand for smart antennas.”
